A novel on 250 note-cards

An interview with the insightful Ryo Yamaguchi at Michigan Quarterly Review.

Riding SideSaddle* is not like most things you’ve read. On the surface it startles with its three-dimensionality — it’s not a spinebound book but a deck of cards, and you shuffle it before each reading. It’s a new, and wonderful, adventure each time, a story of outcasts, their caretaker, and the friendship and love they find with each other. It’s a story about the body and hybridity — based on the myth of Hermaphroditus — and it’s a story about magic and the slipperiness of categories.
